Cranky Large Medium reading, 7 July

Go away.

Haven't you gone? Why not? Is it so hard to make tracks? What is it about the exit that you find so repulsive? Hmmm? Oh, of course, you're not here to see me personally. You want something from me. You came here for a reading. And, once you have it of me, you will go? Promise me, please? Lovely. I can now give you, in good conscience, what you came for. Here you are:
You are quick and energetic, usually getting what you want by sly scheming. You try to be kind and loving, aiming to make life better for others, but you are generally a bully and an obstruction to improvement in the lives of those around you. Maybe you should try a career in Chicago politics, and, maybe you, too, can become either a convicted felon or a government leader or both.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But on the positive side, even if you are currently heading to maximum security facilities involuntarily, you're still one step ahead of these people, all of whom, on this date in history, were cast into zero activity cells: Edward I "Longshanks", Edward Burd Grubb, Moshe Sharett, Henri Nestlé, Yegor Ivanovich Zolotarev, Gösta Mittag-Leffler, Pope Benedict XI, Henry Eyster Jacobs, Jeremiah Markland, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Johanna Spyri, Arthur Conan Doyle, Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola, Clarence Hudson White, William Gary "Bunk" Johnson, Fred Neil, Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett, Vivien Leigh, Veronica Lake, Lillian Copeland, Carl Boenish, Bison Dele, Olivier Levasseur, Mary Surratt, Lewis Paine, David Herold, George Atzerodt, Bill Cullen,
and Ub Iwerks.

Now who's calling whom "prickly"?
Happy birthday, anyway.
